What to expect

When you arrive at Mid Stay

Pull up to the car park's barrier - it will read your number plate, issue you with a ticket and open for you. If you have any problems, press the button to talk to the car park's team, but make sure you don't push the button to take a ticket as you will be charged again for your parking.

Once parked make sure you keep a note of which zone you are in and when you're ready, catch the car park's bus to the terminal. It takes 7 minutes, runs every 10 minutes, 24 hours a day and it's included in the price.

On your return to Stansted

When you return collect your luggage and follow signs for 'Buses to Mid Stay car park' - the bus stop will be in front of the terminal. Tell the driver which zone you parked in and they'll try to drop you off nearby.

Drive to the exit barrier where your car will be recognised and the barrier will lift to let you out again. If the barrier does not lift or if you have any problems press the call button at the barrier to speak to a member of staff. Do not put in a credit or debit card as you may be charged again.

Important Information

Early or late? The car park offers a grace period of 6 hours at their discretion. Any longer than this and you'll be charged the car park's standard rate of £27.50 (May-Sept) or £25.50 (Oct-Apr) - these are subject to change.

Help us go green! There's no need to print out your booking confirmation, just show it on your mobile device.

Most standard cars (without trailers/not commercial vehicles) will be accepted at the car park as long as they fit under the 3.5m barrier and fit in a standard-size parking bay (2.4m x 4.8m).
